The OBRI index(Oxidative Balance Risk Index – patended) determines the status
of the oxidative balance according to the cholesterol levels and is an interesting
predictive index for the cardiovascular risk
(Belcaro, Cornelli, Finco. The carotid intima-media thickness modification
following atorvastatin is bound to the modification of the oxidative stress,
Journal of cardiovascular pharmacology and therapeutics, 2014).
OBRI evaluates in a reliable, reproducible and repeatable way the cardiovascular risk
connected to an altered oxidative balance.
OBRI is based on the determination of total cholesterol (CH), of Oxidatibe Index (OI) and
of Protective Index (PI):
The OBRI index accounts for OI and PI indexes and for the total cholesterol and
represents an important indication of the cardiovascular risk.
